It’s officially here!!! My big hair growth challenge of 2016 and one that I’ve had in the pipeline for quite some time…
Since my decision to go natural and the official start of my natural hair journey, I’ve focused on one thing above all else… hair health. With a completely new texture to embrace and new regimen to figure out I wanted to take things slow and perfect those things before focusing on growth.
Well, I’m happy to say 2+ years later my hair is the healthiest it’s ever been, and all that’s left for me to do now is grow it, grow it, grow it! To do that I’ve decided that protective styling is my best bet. It promotes low manipulation, no heat damage, and on top of that the challenge has a whole bunch of benefits that go beyond hair growth. Check out the video (below) and challenge rules for yourself, trust me you’re bound to see some amazing results!
Now onto the best part of the challenge, you can join in too! Here are the rules:
